Serves" - May 30
At the top of the show, the teams are using the spare
time to break out of the game's intensity. So they
held a belly flop contest. All the guys individually
jumped into the pool in and make so-so splashes, but
brave Tonya goes in and blows away the male
competition, winning the contest. With the silliness
aside, CT starts talking to Rachel and Veronica about
the pending Inferno. It's the last Inferno for the
Men, and CT believes that the Good Guys are going to
send in Dan. He seemingly poses the threat the least
out of all the Bad Ass guys and the Good Guys will
want to keep all their players. CT doesn't have a
problem with this, saying it will only give him a
bigger piece of the final check. Veronica personally
thinks Dan's a better asset to the team than CT
because he actually cares about the team. Dan also
feels that he'll be nominated as he talks to Derrick
and feels he's already proved himself in the very
first Inferno, but he's ready to do it again.
The teams receive their next clue from Dave Mirra.
They're told to meet him at the Grand Bay Hotel at 11
AM tomorrow. They're also told to wear team colors.
The next morning, the teams go to the Grand Bay Hotel.
Which is the location for the next challenge called
"If Memory Serves". The next morning, the teams follow
their clue and meet at the Grand Bay Hotel with their
team colors. Dave meets them inside the hotel and
introduces their next mission, "If Memory Serves". The
three rooms are displayed to the teams. One of them is
fully decorated with Sharper Image items. As soon as
Dave reveals the decorated room, the teams must
memorize the order of the items and try to mimic them
in their team room. Each of the teams will elect one
leader to analyze the room up close while the others
analyze from afar. They only have two minutes to
memorize the room and ten minutes to mimic it. The
team whose room is resembled more close will win the
While their teams strategize, the Bad Asses
immediately choose Dan to be the team leader. Dan's a
bit skeptical about leading, but agrees to it anyway.
The Good Guys are a little worried that they have less
people to work with. They choose Jamie as their team
leader, and assign the other four players each a
section of the room.
Dave now asks the team leaders to step forward and
Jamie and Dan do just that. During their two minutes,
Dan's having a little trouble with all the memorizing.
There's so much detail to the room, and you have to
know all of it. Jamie also makes her attempt taking in
all the details, but it's a bit much for her as with
Dave gives the signal for the 10 minutes to begin. The
teams then go off to their rooms. The Bad Asses also
assign each of their players a section of the room. On
the Good Guy side, Shavonda's flying through her
section. It looks like the Good Guys are having a
smooth mission. In some change of heart, the Bad Asses
are also trying to cooperate with each other for once.
Dan disagrees a little with Abe about which shelf the
menu is supposed to be on, and Abe insists it's the
bottom. Dan is trusting Abe's judgment. Dan and Jamie,
however, are both having trouble remembering the main
table for their teams. As time gets closer to
expiration, the teams scramble to finish.
The 10-minute time clock has reached expiration. Now
the rooms of both teams are inspected and points are
being tallied for who has the best room. Because there
are many perfections and mistakes on both rooms, it's
definitely a toss-up. One of those mistakes include
the menu placement on the Bad Ass team.
Dave announces their scores, the Good Guys got 61 out
of 79 correct placings. The Bad Asses got 53 out of 79
correct placings making the Good Guys the winners. The
GGs get another check for ten large, giving them a
total of 60K in their TBA. The Bad Asses still have
$70,000 in their TBA.
The Good Guys got more ecstatic then the Bad Asses
after winning. They hate that the Good Guys could be
closing the gap on their lead, and they want to work
harder to keep hold of their lead. Now, it's time for
the teams to conduct their deliberations. This is the
last Men's Inferno of the series, it's an important
one. The teams break off and start deliberating.
On the Good Guys team, Mike wants CT because he wants
send a strong player home. Landon and Darrell want to
nominate Dan because they want to eliminate a player
on the BA team, and they belive Dan's the easiest
target as far as the men go. The BAs want Landon,
because they believe that he has been getting weaker
as the game has progressed. They ask Dan his level of
comfort, knowing that it's him that may be nominated.
Dan looks like he's confident, but believes CT is just
too desperate to win and get some money.
The teams meet up for the Inferno nominations. The Bad
Asses nominate Landon, and he looks little shocked.
The Good Guys then nominate Dan into the Inferno. Both
men are a little disappointed. Landon tells Mike that
he would hate to go home this close to the final
mission. Dan also tells Tonya that he doesn't want to
go home, and secretly feels there's a slim chance he
will win, although he believes in himself. Jamie
empathizes with Dan, even though she knows it's better
for her team to go with someone who's less threatening
to the team.
Will the Bad Asses maintain their lead over the Good
Will Landon and Dan win the life shields?
Who'll be the last man going home?
Those questions will be answered on the next episode
of the Inferno II.
